The Board of Directors of the Nebraska Public Power District (NPPD) gave its approval for the construction of a 30-MW wind farm in central Nebraska near the South Dakota border. The project could be expanded to 75 MW if NPPD is able to sell a portion of the output to other utilities. NPPD is currently in negotiations to sell 10 MW to the Omaha Public Power District and 10 MW in the form of renewable energy certificates (RECs) to the Jacksonville Electric Authority in Jacksonville, Florida. It also plans to market an additional 25 MW to other public power entities.
